Gorgeous dress & earrings! I would have liked her to wear a dressier shoe with it, but she looks great! Very pretty & polished.

That is one of the most elegant and flattering short evening dresses I have seen her wear for a while. The pared down styling of this sheath dress relies on the cut and fit and the woven yoke of pale gold and white for effect. The same weave could have been used on the cuffs but it would have been too much.

Conversely, the same weave as the cuffs could have been used on the yoke. Having said that, the open weave at the at the yoke would not have been appropriate for the Japanese Banquet and would also render the gown bland and not a little bit boring. Somehow the balance of the yoke and cuffs is very soft and serenely balanced. Strangely, I find her hair works very well with the dress.

Very pretty white dress with what look like gold accents in the weaved parts. I would have worn lower heels to be more in line with my hosts

It's not an open weave. If you look closely it is gold thread entwined with the white. She isn't showing even a hint of skin.

The dress is quite beautiful, the sheath style fits her body. And the weave detail adds a beautiful interest to it.

This is one of Victoria's most beautiful dresses ever. And there is something very peaceful in her: the dress, the earrings, the hairdo. So elegant.

That dress per se is not my cup of tea but it makes Victoria shines. I think the accesssories are the pieces that make the difference as the give a more subdue shade to the white.

I agree. On re-reading my post it seems that having mentioned the pale gold and white weave of the yoke I lost the plot and mixed my yokes and cuffs . . . I have corrected the post.

I really like the white dress and its fit.
Its simple white dress but there are interesting details on the shoulders and sleeves that makes it stand out. And this time her hair were fitting because it would be a shame to hide shoulders of this dress. Great find and I hope to see it recycled again.

Besides the color on Victoria which looked great, the style wasn't anything special. I was not fond of the tassels on the chest and the wrists.

It's great that Victoria finally recycled this gorgeous dress. It is stunning and together with that lovely hairdo and beautiful jewellery, she looked perfect and very regal.

Love her hair style, not her usual bun. And the diamond ornament in it

I really love the style and colour of her gown. I like the way it falls and moves and is just so very feminine.

As to her hair, wonderful, utterly gorgeous and perfect for the occassion.
